250g (about 1/2 bunch) English spinach, trimmed, washed, dried, shredded
150g feta cheese, crumbled
110g (1/2 cup) chopped semi-dried tomatoes (optional)
2 Tbsp finely grated parmesan cheese
330ml (1 1/3 cups) milk
90g butter, melted
1 egg
1 Tbsp chopped fresh dill (optional)
2 Tbsp finely grated parmesan, extra (optional)

Preheat oven to 200°C.

Line with muffin liners or brush twelve 80ml (1/3-cup) muffin pans with canola oil to lightly grease.

In a large bowl, sift flour and add shredded spinach, feta, tomatoes and parmesan,  stir to combine.

In a measuring jar or another bowl whisk together milk, butter, egg and dill until well combined. Add milk mixture to flour mixture and use a metal spoon to stir until just combined (do not over mix).

Spoon mixture into prepared pans. Sprinkle with extra parmesan. Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Turn out onto wire rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
